We are now stocking a range of Ecozone cleaning products which fit our Barannes values much better than some of the bigger 'eco' brands on the market. We are trying out six products with more to follow if you, our customers, like them and give us positive feedback.
In this article I will tell you a bit more about the company behind the brand and why we'd love you to support it.
Ecozone Limited is a British company that was established in the year 2000. Their aim is to reduce the amount of toxic chemicals found in our homes and to cut-down household CO2 emissions. They have a range of over 60 successful products available. 18 years later, Ecozone is expanding ever more, providing their consumers with more choice and accessibility to fulfil the mission of “make your home an ecozone”.
Why Ecozone? Living in a Healthy Home!
Ecozone have the determination to ensure they provide consumers with entirely eco-friendly alternatives. At Ecozone we start with innovative home cleaning and maintenance solutions and products.
We all want to reduce the amount of toxins that we live with and at Ecozone we believe homes should be safe, clean and healthy places for people (and animals) to flourish, not germs! We don’t see why giving dirt the heave-ho, means letting loose all manner of planet-zapping-chemical health hazards.
For us, being green’s not about attaining some elitist or hippy ideal, respecting the environment can be a way of everyday living for everyone. By giving planet-friendly alternatives to our household problems, we hope it will be easier to make choices that are better for us and the world over.
Why we believe eliminating animal usage in the household product industry makes a difference.
Society as a whole, more than ever now have the option to move forward with technology. It is always possible to avoid using outdated animal-testing methods where products are concerned.
Being an advocate against animal testing is important for us, therefore we also do not use animal bi-products in our formulas. Vegan is what we pride ourselves on and we really can’t see why there is any need to use animal fats in products such as Fabric Softeners, when there are oh-so-many natural and effective plants out there!
We also have a very radiant approval from Cruelty Free International. We won’t go in to all the gory details about what happens in the world, but let’s just say “We are forever supportive”. Smiles.
Why we pride ourselves on our natural ingredients.
Our range of products contain approved natural formulas, that are non-carcinogenic, non-caustic and free from all other harmful components. We also use natural colourings so no worries there! Green means clean.
We strive to be as green as possible – not only to humans but to the environment as well. Therefore, Ecozone’s ingredients are 100% biodegradable and our packaging is reusable and recyclable.
Although we use many natural formulas and plant based ingredients, it doesn’t mean we use just anything… Now, we all know what damage the over consumption of Palm Oil does to our planet (although it can have many effective uses as a product) but for us… It’s a no-go. At Ecozone, we are not only combating to change the amount of CO2 emitted from our households for the better of our O-zone layer, but we are also active in contesting against the unethical production methods of ingredients such as Palm Oil. Overproduction of Palm Oil means the unnecessary diminishing of our rainforests and harming wildlife such as Orang-utans. It also adds to the CO2 levels rising due to the manufacturing of it, that’s why we are Palm Oil FREE.
